Laboratoire Synbionyme, a probiotic skin care brand based in Paris, is making its debut in the U.S.
The brand's unique formulation incorporates prebiotics and a probiotic extract. Prebiotics act as the fertilizer to help grow good bacteria, or probiotics, that are vital for good dermal health, the company says.
Dr. Michel Bohbot, CEO, Laboratoire Synbionyme, explains, "Our products reinvigorate your skin's three barriers, especially the microbiota layer, which helps maintain skin health and homeostasis."
Synbionyme is introducing five skin care products to U.S. consumers -- Universal Serum, Radiance Moisturizing Gel-Cream, 24-Hour Moisturizing Cream, Enzymatic Clarifying Lotion, and Progena Lift Cream.
More About the Formula
The skin's microbiota barrier has billions of bacteria that can protect your epidermis, but humans require the right balance of good, friendly bacteria to keep the skin healthy. That is difficult today because your skin is under constant attack from the natural aging process, stress and environmental assaults.
"Our researchers at Synbionyme have developed an exclusive multi-defense system, Pro-B3, that helps heal and reinforce your body's three skin barriers," Dr. Bohbot says.
Synbionyme gets to the root of skin care problems by restores the equilibrium to the skin barriers -- the outer skin, the immune system, and the microbiota. Pro-B3's ingredients are prebiotics, probiotic extract and Omegas 3,6 and 9.
"With the research progress we have made on the skin's microbiota, we now understand why it is so important to take care of our skin's bacteria and not to use harsh or aggressive products which destroy helpful microorganisms and create an imbalance," Dr. Bohbot said.
"Synbionyme uses skin synbiotics (a combination of prebiotics and probiotic extract) to keep your skin healthy and ageless," he adds.
